A LIFE'S ROMANCE CHAPTER. XXXII. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 September 1907

POINTS IN SEPARATED MILK. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 September 1907

POINTS IN SEPARATED WTLK. The following points should be remem-' ?ewd in: .separating oj'ijk:— First, the speed of the separator must be uniform and up to the standard required by the 'makers of that particular machine. Second, the temperature of the milk should be --uch as will make It flow, readily ; -the warmer It Is the more perfect will be the separation. Third, the amount of milk run through the machine should remain constant, and should not be increased over that Intended for the machine. Fourth, the machine should be set on a solid base or foundation, so there 'rill be no Jar or shaking about as It is turned, such as would tend to Inter fere with the even flow of the milk through the bowl and thus destroy Its efficiency In skimming. Fifth, the sepa rator must be kept thoroughly and scrupulously clean, particular care being taken that none of the tubes through which the milk flows become obstructed In any way. Sixth, the test of the cream can be readily changed by chang ing e...

THE "GEORGIA" EXPLOSION. DEATH IN THE TUBRET. AWFUL SCENES. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 September 1907

THE 'GEORGIA' EXPLOSION. DEATH IN THE T0BRET. AWFUL SCENES. From New York/ on 6th July, the cor respondent oE the London 'Daily Mail' wrote; — ' Like many similar disasters in the re cent annals of the American Navy, the terrible explosion on the battleship Georgia yesterday was due to premature ignition of the powder charges. It Is thought that a spark from the smoke stack descending through the upper aperture of the turret, which was open, caused the explosion. Instantly the narrow enclosure was converted Into an Inferno. Men, frenzied with pain, battered their fists almost to pulp against the walls of the turret, or fell to the floor writhing la agony. Many of them were burned be yond recognition, and others, when relief came, though alive were sightless. Yet during the few seconds of their agony many acts of heroism were performed. One seaman, seeing the spark, jumped with a bound to the ammunition hatch, closing It in the nick of time and saving the ship from destruction. Anoth...

Soil Inoculation. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 September 1907

Soil Inoculation. Among the comparatively recent dis coveries of biological science Is the fact that our -leguminous plants depend largely on certain microbes which lo ? | fest their roots for the supply of nitro fen for their growth. A subsequent dis , eovery is that all soils do not necessarily ''.contain the specific microbes needful for «echUnd of legume, and that the failure .of, say, lucerne or clover, or a stunted growth, may be due to the absence of the special microbe, and not due. to bad seed or Incomplete manuring. Follow ing on this the use of the special germs to inoculate the soil haa been advocated, ? and now preparations of ihese, made '--? ? either in Germany' or the United States, ? f- . . are on sale. The Royal Agricultural So - clety of England has been testing the nee of these at the Woburo station, aoa r. )'/ iPrlvyoei^cer. has reported on the use ol ^.7^^ii^me;i!ur^;the-eaapn:l?05.

WEEN BUYING A BULL. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 18 September 1907

! WEEN BUYING A BULI* The performances of the ancestry of the bull should be examined when the farmer is about to make a purchase. The more good per formances in the upward line of his ancestry the better. Good per formances on the part of ancestral dams mean the giving of large quanti ties of milk, rich in quality and persis tence In milk giving for a long period. Good performances on 'the part of the ancestral sire means the begetting ot many dams that have been good ' per formers, and of sires that have been more than ordinarily useful in the dairv. The more, that lines of good perfor.n ance in the ancestry centre in the sire, the more assured is the guarantee that good dairy qualities will be transmitted to the progeny. The successive sires should be chosen from the same breed. If chosen from another breed disturbing factors are in troduced. This may not be apparent at the first, but it will be later. By ud nerlng -to .the same line of breeding the Improvement should be rapid .a...

At the restaurant ehe can exhibit her beauty, her jewels, and her dresses, to the envy and amazement of people whom she ?would never dream of asking to her bouse. — 'Black and White.'
